Being Asian in White Spaces

Being Asian in White Spaces

By Kleigh Balugo
“Being Asian in White Spaces” aims to explore the question: What happens when you’re the only Asian person in a room? The Asian American experience is complex and I attempt to better grasp it by speaking to members of my community. The podcast is separated in to two different parts: isolation and fetishization. They’re two sides of the same coin and in constant conversation with each other.
